    The Episode Behind The Laughter, is just full of small Simpson's moments.

    Huckleberry Hound: I was so gay.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    "Dad, we did something really bad."
    "Did you wreck the car?"
    "No."
    "Did you raise the dead?"
    "Yes!"
    "But the car's OK?"
    "Uh-huh."
    "All right then."

    "You have reached the Springfield Police Rescue-phone! If you know the name of the felony being committed, press 1. For a list of felonies, press 2. If you are being murdered or if you are using a rotary phone, please stay on the line... You have selected 'regicide.' If you know the name of the king or queen being murdered, press 1..."

    "The fingers you have used to dial are too fat for this phone. To obtain a special dialing wand, smash the keypad with your palm now."

    Some of the best small moments are the music that's played on the phone while someone (usually Marge) is on hold. There's the Halloween episode with the complaint line for the killer Krusty doll: "Everybody loves a clown, so why don't you?"
    Or the episode where Homer is put in a mental institution: "Crazy...."

    There's one of the later Sideshow Bob episodes that has a montage of various scenes of Sideshow Bob saying, "Hello, Bart." In one of those clips in the montage, he's not saying it to Bart Simpson. He's saying it to a train marked Bay Area Rapid Transit.

    It's not exactly a small moment, more like a big musical number, but I love the scene in the Springfield Elementary President's Day recital where they do a gigantic tribute to the lesser known Presidents:
    "We are the mediocre Presidents
    You won't find our faces on dollars or on cents
    There's Taylor & Tyler & Rutherford B. Hayes
    And William Henry Harrison (I died in 30 days!)..."

    From that same episode, there's this fun little running gag where the radio DJs keep trying to play holiday appropriate songs for Valentine's Day & President's Day. But for some reason, they keep playing "The Monster Mash" instead.

    Yup. Surprisingly early in the series for such a blatant Smithers-is-gay joke.

    I loved the scene on the Simpsons "Crimson Tide" spoof where the Soviet Union suddenly "announces" its continued existence to the UN and suddenly we see Soviet troops pop out of floats in Russia, the wall in Germany re-appears and Lenin comes back to life and breaks out of his viewing tomb Frankenstein-like.

    "Must crush capitalism.....grrrr!!!"

    Homer: Enough of what's out. What's in?
    Moe: Ice-blended mocha drinks and David Schwimmer.
    Homer
    : Yes, he is handsome in an ugly sort of way.
